5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Corban University has created an environment in which I am stretched and grown academically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. A day doesn't go by where I don't learn something new, either about a subject in class, or about myself. I am becoming a part of my community here, and I am learning how to have a successful position in the world. I believe that people can make the world a better place, and Corban is teaching me how to do that. They aren't just teaching me how to survive--but also how to thrive and how to help others thrive in the process. I love being a part of the Corban community, which is special and unique in so many ways. But I also love learning how to be a part of the world community, and I am becoming more and more excited to participate in it.

Off-Campus Dining: Corban is at least three miles from the nearest restaurant, which is a Shari's. There are many diverse options for food in Salem, OR, and although it may take a while to get there, the situation is not entirely hopeless once you find the places you like to eat.

Administration: Recently Corban has reviewed and amended it's alcohol policy, allowing those who are of age to drink off campus as long as alcohol consumption is responsible--there is still no alcohol, drugs, or tobacco products allowed on campus; I appreciate the change because it keep sCorban free of a potentially rowdy party crowd, but doesn't introduce false pretenses of how life would be outside a religious campus. Campus security doesn't necessarily patrol noise violations--fellow dorm-mates and RA's are very spot-on on protecting other hallmates from sound pollution.

Campus Food: Of the campuses I reviewed before attending Corban, Aramark Dining was the only food I could stomach. While they cook for a large number of people and sometimes the food can be bland, there is typically always something to eat. With scheduling, it's important to make times for meals, because it can be easy to overbook yourself. Aramark doesn't offer to-go options, so you either fork out money for a full meal plan you can't use, or pay less and cook your own meals.

Scholarships: Corban doesn't offer a plethora of scholarships other than academic and athletic scholarships. Most of their support for students goes to those who are financially unable. Work hard and take as many college courses as possible in high school or excel at a sport, and if worried about being unable to attend do to lack of financial aid, don't be afraid to send a letter of your story to the financial aid department.

Campus Housing: Corban University offers an amazing on campus life. Living arrangements in the dorms range from a double to a quad, and the quality of room depends on which dorm the student chooses. Changing rooms or dorms if dissatisfaction does occur is quick, easy, and painless. However, the brother and sister dorm activities and lifestyles are amazing. From random holiday parties to spontaneous trips and the open and welcoming atmosphere, Corban provides a fantastic place to live many students call home.

Campus Food: It gives many different styles of food, but they really only have a two week rotation, so the meals are the same over and over again. But at the same time, it is food.

Health & Safety: I feel completely safe and at ease here at Corban.

Athletics: I work during sporting events

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Can't really say anything. I'm a freshman

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety on campus is very important. There is a state penitentiary a block away, but that does not mean that our campus is in any way unsafe.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Because I don't have a car with me I don't go off campus to eat all that often. When I do go off campus to eat its usually late at night with a large group of people to some fast food place. That being said, everything is very close and affordable.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I think it is a difficult process with any school, trying to find financial aid, but here I felt like the staff actually wanted to help me find money so that coming to school here was a tangible option.

Campus Food: The atmosphere in the dining hall is great.

The food is always available when the dining hall is open and there are plenty of options for people with allergies. I have a nut allergy and I don't have to worry about it very often. It would make me feel a little better if the food was consistently labeled though.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus safety is very present and always available to help in any situation. I have never felt unsafe on campus, even when walking alone late at night. I don't think there is much crime on campus at all.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics are a somewhat large part of my school environment. The hall that I am living in is really supportive of all the athletic teams and we attend all of the games that we are able to. That being said, there isn't much student involvement, just the normal group of students that are more involved in student life than others.

The games are always fun to go to and I have always enjoyed myself. The fan base isn't very large but those who attend are fairly consistent.

The athletic facilities are a little small but provide adequately for the needs of athletes and students. There is a gym open for the students and athletes during the day.

I have played a few intramural sports in my first semester at college and I have always had fun. There is a great environment among everyone involved. The sportsmanship and competitiveness always seems balanced and those playing understand that the students playing are there for fun.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I love the classes I am taking here. Although I am a freshman and taking general ed classes, everything is taught very well. The professors really care about our education and will gladly talk to you about grades and class material. The curriculum is interesting to me and I think that with the education I am receiving I will be able to successfully get into the grad school of my choice and, eventually, the career of my choice.

The workload is reasonable. Of course there is a lot of work to do but I think that goes without saying. I don't ever feel overwhelmed with the amount of work that needs to be done as long as I stay on schedule and complete all my work on time. I think the professors understand how difficult it is to be a student sometimes and assign homework accordingly.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: I don't have much interaction with Salem mostly because I don't have a way to get off campus. That being said, I do go into town sometimes with girls from my hall and I have always had a good time. Because we live close to a fairly large city, there are many things to do that are not too far away.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love the community environment on campus. I've always felt welcome and there are always so many things to do all the time. The housing process was very smooth for me. I just had to fill out a form and then I was paired with my roommate. I think they did a great job; my roommate and I get along very well.

I wish that my dorm had more than one laundry room though. Other than that, there isn't anything I would change about my dorm.

4 College Student

Academics: Very intelectual. There are lots of courses avalibe to support my interests.

3 College Student

Athletics: Sports are not the most important thing to this school. Intermural sports are avalible to anyone who wants to participate.
